But I do know, that Rapists are initially guaranteed visitation rights, as any other father.
Perhaps a Judge could throw those rights out if there is abuse after the rape. But the SD legislature has passed laws telling it's State Courts that rape, in and of itself, is not enough to take away visitation rights.
skeptic06, by the your use of the term bollocks, I can assume your Brittish. By being on liberal sights, I assume your of the Labour Party.
I think your a little bit cranky about the recent election returns there. Tracy Joan has been around for a while, knows the rules.
Quite frankly, this doesn't really read all that much like a press release. Just letting us know that the Democratic leadership put out a major policy initiative yesterday for when we take back the House. I would much rather read the DNC take on things, than just the Washington Post.
That is what is most amazing about all this, that both AFL-CIO President John Sweeny and a representative of the Win To Change coalition stepped on the stage of this rally in support of immigrant workers rights.
You get undocumented workers legalized, they get rights, protection, learn english, get invested in the country knowing they'll be here for the long haul, etc..
Any pro-immigration bill, is also a pro-worker bill.
It was amazing, Senator Kennedy and Congressman Moran (VA) made speaches. The Washington DC Cardinal, a Methodist Bishop who was speaking for all Methodist Bishops, Muslim leaders, Jewish leaders, and more importantly labor leaders. That's right, John Sweeny as well as the president of the SEIU speaking for The Change to Win coalition.
EVERY single progressive should be proud of what happened today.
